This is the first half of the Bills Big Board. This is not a rating of overall rankings but instead who the Bills rank and who will be players they would target. All of them contain certain attributes the Bills prefer. Those in bold are ones that already have visited with the Bills or Bills were interested in by attending pro day, particularly Doug Whaley or Buddy Nix

1)      Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina-Self Explanatory

2)      Mike Evans WR Texas A&M-Big Wins, again Big Wins

3)      Greg Robinson OT Auburn- Giant road grader who is the type of big guy Marrone wants

4)      Sammy Watkins WR Clemson- explosive playmaker, can do everything except be clutch

5)      Khalil Mack LB/DE Buffalo-best defensive player not named Clowney, excellent in coverage, can rush the passer, nothing he can’t do

6)      Eric Ebron TE UNC- oversized WR who is a big threat over the middle

7)      Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M-most sound tackle, can play LT or RT in a pinch, lacks the upside of Robinson

8)      Kony Ealy DE Missouri- prototypical end prospect, has the size that you want, still not all there yet

9)      CJ Mosley LB Alabama: Very good in coverage, high football IQ, can play all three LB spots and is the perfect guy to have next to Kiko.

10)   Calvin Pryor S Lousville -physical hard-hitting safety that is also good at man-coverage

11)   Kelvin Benjamin FSU-Tank

12)   Ryan Shazier LB Ohio State-very good in coverage, can do everything but rush the passer

13)   Odell Beckham Jr WR LSU- Sammy Watkins and clutch, deadly with the football in his hand

14)   Dee Ford DE Auburn-fast and speedy edge rusher, Nix personally attended his pro day

15)   Austin-Sefarian Jenkins TE Washington- Power Forward like player at TE, big and athletic and good receiving tight end but can also block

16)  Taylor Lewan OT Michigan-big guy at tackle that has off-field issues, plays a little soft though but can play RT or LT

17)   Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt-big reliable receiver who dominated the SEC despite poor QB play, also the cousin of Jerry Rice

18)   Allen Robinson WR Penn State-Big, physical WR who can make plays after the catch

19)   Troy Niklas TE Notre Dame-Hercules, big Gronk-like TE who is still developing as a receiver but has all the tools you want in a TE

20)   Scott Chrichton DE Oregon State-well-built and has good instincts, very good against the run

21)   Donte Moncrief WR Ole Miss-Big at 6’3 220 but also fast with running a 4.4 at the Combine, still developing as he is only 20 years old

22)   Cameron Fleming OT Stanford-played RT in college and is very good at what he does, can start immediately at RT

23)   Bradley Roby CB Ohio State-has speed at CB but lacks the instincts necessary to be an elite CB

24)   Antonio Richardson-big guy who has the kind of size that Marrone wants, high upside too

25)   Terrance Brooks S FSU- very good CF-like safety, the best replacement for Byrd
